(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A simple camera has a converging lens of focal length 50.0 mm.

It is used to photograph a tree 3.00 m high.

The tree is 8.00 m away from the lens.

Calculate the distance v between the lens and the film, giving your answer in mm to three significant figures.

2. Relevant equations

1/f = 1/u + 1/v

3. The attempt at a solution

1/50 = 1/8000 + 1/(-v)

v = -50.3 mm

Is this correct? Thank you!
